Nikon Coolpix 3200 Video
If 2 megapixels is enough resolution for you, this easy-to-use Nikon is a good starter camera, but like its 3.2-megapixel stablemate, it lacks manual controls.
Despite a few flaws, this is a good digital camera for starter snapshooters who crave simplicity and a helping hand but don't want to sacrifice picture quality.
Nikon's new member of its advanced P series, the Coolpix P300, offers a fast f1.8, wide-angle lens, broad set of manual controls, and a shooter-friendly but compact design.
A 24x optical zoom makes this crossover camera a good alternative to a dSLR, but its lack of HD video shooting hurts.
The Nikon Coolpix S200 digital camera looks pretty and will fit almost anywhere, but it just doesn't take very good photos.
For easy automatic snapshots of still subjects in good lighting, the Nikon Coolpix L24 is sufficient. If you need more than that, don't bother.
Shooters who know their photographic stuff will be thrilled with the Nikon Coolpix 5700's sophisticated feature set.
The Nikon Coolpix 5200 is an easy-to-use ultracompact for newbies who want to print big, but image-quality-conscious buyers should stay away.
The Nikon Coolpix S500 is a 7-megapixel digital shooter with a cool scroll wheel but not-so-cool picture quality.

Nikon Coolpix 3200 Review
The good: Decent image quality; autofocus-assist lamp; simple operation; solid macro capabilities.
The bad: No memory card or rechargeable batteries in the box; few manual controls; slow shot-to-shot time with flash; no diopter adjustment; slow autofocus in dim light.
The bottom line: This easy-to-use Nikon is a good starter camera for the new digital photographer, but it lacks most manual controls more-experienced shooters demand, and both the memory card and the rechargeable batteries cost extra.
